New ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 4 Trailers: All Men Must Die

Published 9 months ago by

[WARNING: This article contains SPOILERS for Game of Thrones.]

With the season 4 premiere of Game of Thrones less than two weeks away, HBO has the series’ loyal viewers whipped into a frenzy thanks to a constant stream of trailers, sneak peeks, and featurettes – all teasing what direction the series will take in the aftermath of “The Red Wedding.”

Following along with that strategy, HBO has released two more trailers, though neither contain any new or extended footage. The first trailer (above) features quick shots of characters giving furtive glances intercut with sword-swinging, fire-breathing action. The flurry of images are all connected by this season’s ominous tagline: All Men Must Die. It’s unclear whether or not that phrase is meant as a warning or prophecy, but either way, it most certainly does not mean things will get any easier for those seeking the Iron Throne – or for those running from it.

The second trailer (below) has narration from Kit Harrington’s Jon Snow, a character whose journey took a drastic turn last season after appearing to switch sides and traveling with the wildlings north of The Wall.

Now Jon is back with his brothers at Castle Black, preparing to defend the realm from the invading wildlings and whatever other threats come at them from the north. With the Starks for the most part out of the picture, the Lannisters prepare to celebrate with the wedding of Joffrey (Jack Gleason) to Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer). New faces come to King’s Landing, and new threats as well, and siblings Cersei (Lena Headey), Jamie (Nikolaj Coster-Waldeau), and Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) must face them all.

Of the surviving Starks, Bran (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) continues his spiritual journey beyond the wall, Arya (Maisie Williams) wanders the Riverlands with the Hound (Rory McCann), and Sansa (Sophie Turner) continues to be the Lannisters’ prisoner. While out east, Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) learns the hardships that come with ruling and faces difficulties with her ever-growing dragons.

Expect the drama and intrigue of season 4 to be even more intense, and the death toll only higher. From an adaptation standpoint, there will be more changes made from the source material than in previous seasons, keeping even fans caught up with the books guessing at where the show will go next. And while showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss envision the series wrapping in about seven or eight seasons, the momentum surrounding Game of Thrones doesn’t show any signs of slowing down.

  1. Amelia Clarke is so hotttt.

  2. yeaahh… tell them what’s coming, Bran…!
    Is she wearing designer boots and jeans in that picture?

  3. I want Amelia to go back to other costumes ;)
    This season is going to be AMAZING!
    I am SO addicted!!!

  4. This show is phenomenal. I have not read the books (I don’t read books anyway, which is why I prefer movies) though, so it’s nice not knowing what is coming. I’m still ticked about my favorite character, Robb Stark, but I will get over it once I see Joffrey get his head chopped off.

  5. Everyone in this story has been raped, murdered, poisoned (spoiler!), tortured, starved, had their d*ck cut off, their hand cut off, had their family killed, frozen, torched, lost… or basically have survived (IF that) some sort of hell.

    EXCEPT for her. The “Khalisee.” What’s up with that? Yes she was sold into a forced marraige, but even that didn’t cause any harm! Hell- the man died after a few short months! And then she took over his kindgom! And now she’s on the warpath for the iron throne… gathering ships and armies and supplies like it was nothing. And to top it all off, she has a dragon- excuse me- THREE dragons that bend to her will! WTF ccan someone say “Mary Sue”?

    • Umm, literally her entire family besides her brother was killed before the show started. The love of her life and her unborn child both died. Also, she never took over his Kingdom, most of his Kingdom left her besides a few loyal people. She barely survived making her way through dessert afterwards and would have died if she hadn’t stumbled upon Quarth. Then, while in Quarth, the majority of her loyal Dorthraki followers, some of who she had developed friendships with, were killed. She hasn’t had it as hard as some others characters, but it isn’t like everything has been easy for her.

      • It’s been easy for her. How many characters have an ad photo that looks like a Girls of Westeros pin up calendar?
        How many characters have a massive following? (Stolen) riches? (3) Dragons? A body that hasn’t been mutalated? Trust me- life’s easy for her.

        • ”How many characters have a massive following?” I mean, the Lannisters, the Tyrells, and Mance Rayder all have massive armies. Maybe they don’t worship them as much as Dany is worshiped, but they are loyal
          ”(Stolen) riches?” Again, all the Lannisters and Tyrells are pretty rich, and some of their riches were taken from other houses they’ve destroyed.
          ”(3) Dragons?” Only her, but if she didn’t have Dragons there wouldn’t really be a story with her. The dragons are what give her a chance at the Iron Throne, thus making her relevant to the whole story. Meanwhile, she has no wildfire, White Walkers, an elite spy network, she can’t change her face or create shadow monsters to preform assassinations, she can’t take over the mind of other human or animals, she can’t bring people back from the dead,etc. Every significant character has something, magical, or otherwise, that gives them a leg up in the game. Dragons are her thing.
          ”A body that hasn’t been mutalated?” Most of the characters currently have unmutilated body…
          She hasn’t had it as bad at the starks, for example, but no one in this story has an ”easy” life. What’s even your point?

  6. That dragon looks so good! Can’t wait, this season is going to be nuts

  7. Looks like another epic season!

  8. It looks amazing and I am excited for this season but I was excited for the last one as well and felt let down on many levels. I’m trying to see it as last season set the stage for this season. *crossing fingers
